Windows 7: Accidentally deleted audio driver.

I think I finally understood what your problem is. You did not do the best job explaining it if my guess is correct.

Click your speaker icon. Click Playback devices. Right click in the empty space.

Make sure that both boxes are ticked. If you see the device you (might have) disabled, enable it.

Anyway, I hope you are still lurking and you will see this.

I have this exact screen up (Sound, with the Playback tab showing). It says "No audio devices are installed. I did right click and check the two boxes also.

Sorry to hear about your troubles and frustration. It's understandable you want to give up, but we're not willing to just yet.

Why don't we start over from the beginning - could you tell us exactly how you deleted the audio driver by accident? Did you remove the actual device from Device Manager, or did you delete any particular files through Explorer? Or what happened?

Perhaps understanding how the problem came about gives us an important clue we're missing so far.

Did you try scanning for hardware changes in the Device manager? A device cannot unplug itself just like that from Windows, within BIOS maybe, but not here..

If you're still playing along at home: I took it to the person I purchased it from and he said it needed a new sound card. Twenty bucks and it's done.

I thought that was a good deal, that's the entire cost. Most places around here charge almost fifty dollars just to look at it. This guy works out of his home, he's a retired Marine. I bought the tower, monitor, keyboard and mouse for $80.00 and it works great. Can't complain about that up-front cost!
